Parts Notes:
A. These are small 3mm white LED's, 5mm will work fine. Forward voltage on these is 3.4 volts. Assuming a 12 V power supply and a desired LED current of 50 mA yelds 39 Ohms for ea. 3 LED's in series. LED Resistor Calculator
B. These are low cost carbon film resistors. From the LED calculator above, minim .2 watts required.
C. There will be a multi-wire connection to the controller board and a seperate connection for power and switching of the back lighting.



Instructions to follow

Will include complete dimensions, cutting diagrams and a pattern to create and etch the PCB with either the photo paper transfer or development process.

Sim Objectives
(Revised June 2016)

1. Immersive. To be fully immersive, the sim will need to be enclosed and provide multiple environment views.

2. Portable. The ability to move the sim with components fitting through standard doors. The enclosure will have to be modular with a maximum width of 32 inches per module.

3. Samll Footprint. I don't want the sim to take up an entire room. Will make every effort to have the entire sim enclosure fit on a sheet for 4 ft x 8 ft plywood. This will necessitate a single seat, half cockpit sim.

4. Functional, in substantial conformance with the processes and procedures of the real aircraft.

5. Accuracy. While some sim builders hold to a very high standard of accuracy and scale, my goal will be the appearance of accuracy is sufficient. Where deviations from scale are necessary, they are acceptable.
